Plasma ACTH and cortisol responses to intravenous injection of 100 micrograms synthetic ovine corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) were studied in 4 patients with hypothalamic hypopituitarism, 2 patients with Sheehan's syndrome, 2 patients with isolated ACTH deficiency and 10 normal subjects. All 4 patients with hypothalamic hypopituitarism had exaggerated(More)
This review aimed to characterize the gait disturbances in Parkinson disease (PD) and highlight how a rehabilitation program would affect the care of patients with PD. The typical PD gait is a type of hypokinetic gait characterized by reduced stride length and velocity; shortening of the swing phase; and increase in the stance phase, double-limb support(More)
We report a patient with adult-type Pompe disease treated with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) for 5.5 years. We evaluated pulmonary function and muscle strength using 6-minute walk test, manual muscle test, and dynamometer-based measurement. The long-term ERT resulted in a substantial improvement in the pulmonary function and a possible stabilization(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effects of PR-350, a newly developed radiosensitizer, on dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) activity and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) pharmacokinetics in 8-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats. In an in vitro study with hepatic cytosol, DPD activity was dose-dependently reduced by PR-350 at 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 mmol/l to(More)
